Shaykh ‘Awwamah’s answer on Hadithus Sayhah fi Ramadan

Question

What is the ruling of the following Hadith?

تكون هدة في شهر رمضان توقظ النائم وتفزع اليقظان، ثم تظهر عصابة في شوال، ثم معمعة في ذي الحجة، ثم تنتهك المحارم في المحرم، ثم يكون موت في صفر، ثم تتنازع القبائل في الربيع، ثم العجب كل العجب بين جمادى ورجب، ثم ناقة مقتبة خير من دسكرة تغل مائة ألف

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “There will be a thudding/crashing sound in Ramadan that will awaken [even] one who is asleep and terrify the one who is awake. Then there will appear a group in Shawwal, then wars in Dhul Hijjah. Thereafter prohibitions will be violated in Muharram, followed by death in Safar, then the tribes will conflict with each other in [the months of] Rabi’. The most amazing [thing will happen] between Jumada and Rajab. Then a laden she-camel will be better than palaces consisting of one hundred thousand.”

Composure of a Sahabiyyah at the time of calamity

Question

Please comment on the authenticity of this narration:

The son of Ummu Khallad (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) was martyred. When she heard about it she came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) to enquire about his position and reward. Despite being afflicted by the great tragedy of losing her son, her face was still covered with a niqab (veil/purdah).

A Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was quite astonished by this [level of composure] and he remarked: “You have come to enquire about your son [who was martyred] yet you [are so composed that you] have still covered your face [in this tragic moment]?”

She replied: “I may have lost my son, but I have not lost my modesty.”
